Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really enjoyed our night out here. Entry is free and the setting is spectacular. The stand and its interior are also worth exploring, lots of marble, chandeliers and elaborately tiled flooring. We speak no Portuguese but everyone was very friendly and we were able to successfully place small bets (2 reals). Food was basic but good value, e.g. 10 reals for a toasted cheese sandwich.
Thanks to the Club for the warm welcome.

Very nice club well located in Rio de Janeiro. We work there during the tennis event at the Rio Open 2020 and the facilities are great. Very good restaurant with some great local food and a sushi place very well done. The people at the club are very friendly and we enjoy every time we come back.

Horses Race, restaurants, events for kids, theater, music show, pub, gym, party, all of this in the same big and beautiful space. Jockey Club has a luxurious house for horses race, well located between Jardim Botanico, Gavea and Lagoa neighborhood. With a great view to Corcovado, you can enjoy this options or only stay quiet and enjoy the view.

I agree with other reviews this should be in río's top 10 activities. It's free to enter, great atomsphere, regular races and a great view close up to the action.

Its about a 50min walk from the main beeches and near to club Flamengo. There's lots to see around the lake and a great view towards christ the redeemer.

Enjoy.

Admittedly, we both enjoy horse racing so we decided to go to the course in Gavea (15 minute taxi ride from Ipanema). What a great afternoon out; finding out the relevant information was tricky but it seems that races occur most weekends 2-6pm (& some during the week). No charge to enter the course and there are a couple of restaurants for lunch. The one that we ate at was excellent, relaxed and right by the course also good value. The course was not busy and full of beautiful laid back locals mainly with their families. The Jockey Club building & stands are elegant and possibly date from late 19th century. Betting was easy even though our Portuguese is not good- some of the tellers spoke English. You can easily see the horses close up from the rails which is always thrilling. Go!

On vacation in Rio visited the racetrack on Saturday 11th August. The winningmost jockey ever rode there on this day --Jorge Ricardo , who surpassed the previous record of Russell Baze in February 2018 and has been champion jockey of Brazil on 26 occasions. He rode a 10/1 winner for me after a disqualification.
Amazing racetrack about 2miles round with a grass and a sand circuit. There were 10 races on the card and , for the first time i witnessed 4 persons playing table football on an extended table tennis table, which appeared to be part of a league.

I visited the jockey club on a Sunday afternoon, having previously checked that horse racing was scheduled. We ended up spending a few hours in the place, the races are very well timed with one every 30’ which gives you time to see the horses before they race, place a bet (starting from 2 reals so good fun for all) and see the race which is about 5’ in total all inclusive.
Ton of charm exuding from this place from a colonial era, relaxed atmosphere good for families too.

Elegant track. Fun to watch the races. We ate on patio of onsite restaurant. Delicious steak and sides, 500 ml bottle of beer served in ice bucket! An agent circulated around so you could place bets as you ate.
